Couch to 5k: Week 8, Day 2

Sunday, August 29, 2010

I can't believe I have already come this far. It seems like just last week I started this program. OK...well mmaaaaaybe not juuuust last week.

Today was another 28 minutes straight with 5min warm up and 5 min cool down...I did WAY more stretching at the end this time...I felt I needed it more for some reason.

I ran a wee bit faster today...really for my own amusement...I wanted to beat Friday's distance so I thought I would pick up the pace a little. Just a little competition with myself!

While I ran (indoors) my daughter did so WiiFit activity of her own...I can't wait til my Tuesday run so I can go outside again...My daughter can't be left alone so I have to do run indoors...however, she won't be alone Tuesday! YIP YIP YAY!!!!

As soon as I finish this C25K, I wlll swing over to a C2 10K progr,,,,however I obviously won't be starting from scratch...although maybe I will...as well as keep up my 5k runs on other days...I'll have to research it and see what the best approach to take is...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...I guess I could also simply continue doing this with a 10% increase weekly...

Today's Stats:

Distance= 4.32km
Time= 28 minutes
Pace= 6.28/km
Calories= 372

Later Sparkers

    You are almost done! emoticon emoticon emoticon
    On the team c25k Graduates, there are people doing different programs on there. I'm on the 3rd week of Bridge to 10k. I like it because you run for a few minutes & walk for one then keep repeating. When I finished c25k I WAS running 3 miles no stopping, then go into the habit of taking walk breaks (which I learned is OK). That's what I like about the Bridge to 10k - that it has walk breaks built in emoticon . Eventually I think it builds up to 0 breaks.
    Wow, you are doing great! Can you believe you are just about to conquer 5k?? What a great feeling!
